we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of iran. hagel ruled out a military strike would be unreasonable, it would be foolish to do that. something that the obama administration despite fact i think they have taken a rather accommodating and patien
-year history of the universe is found inside a rock. i thought it was in steve's brain. >>> i'm toure. it's the year of lincoln. surprising me a little bit but more locks than a hardware store. >> i haven't seen one of the movies and if you haven't either, don't be embarrassed. you were probably too busy watching "the cycle." >>> loyal lew. the president flushing out the second term cabinet today promoting the chief of staff jack lew to run the treasury. >> so for all of the talk out there about deficit reduction, making sure our books are balanced, this is the guy who did it. three times. over the past year, i have sought jack's advice on virtually every decision from economic policy to foreign policy. >> it signals a shift in white house priorities. if confirmed, lew replaces tim geithner whose background helped him navigate the financial vie sis and new wall street regulations and lew spent three years working with wall street the background is in budget fights and matches washington's new focus. lew was an aide to tip o'neill in the '80s helping score the social security deal with pre
to washington -- >> who cared about the consumer. >> -- that steve rattner supported. >> i think i know where we're going. >> if only there were that person. you could just check them off. >> you know what? there is. >> steve didn't support him. >> absolutely. you are going to come around on elizabeth warren. you just are. who doesn't? elizabeth warren said this on the issue. aig's reckless bets nearly crashed our entire economy. taxpayers across this country saved aig from ruin. and it would be outrageous for this company to turn around and sue the federal government because they think the deal wasn't generous enough. steve. >> so i agree with elizabeth warren who's completely right. >> that's all i need to hear. you just made my morning. >> january 9th of the new session. >> check right there. >> it's amazing what a victory does. >> come on. >> something about 1,000 fathers and orphans. >> something like that. something like that. so i'm curious, mika. i'm reading "the new york times," as i do every morning. >> oh, yes. >> and i'm hurt. i am hurt because you always told me, and this is why, of
nominee. u.s. economics editor for "the economist," and senior economics reporter steve leaseman. steve, first to you. what are the markets saying? what is jack lew's reputation in wall street and what do you see coming forward with debt negotiations? >> i think this appointment is being taken advisedly in the sense that it's a kind of wait and see. you know, from my perspective, having covered more or less -- more or less degrees, seven of the past treasury secretaries, jack lew does come to the table with a bio that perhaps has less independence in it than any treasury secretary i can remember. robert rubin, hailing from goldman sachs, salary summers was a renowned economist. paul o'neil from alcoa. there's nothing on lew's resume that suggests any measure of independence. markets want a little bit of independence from their treasury secretary. that said, if jack lew's appointment can, in fact, result in some kind of longer term budget deal affixed to entitlements, tax reform, corporate and individual that i think markets would be happy to give up that independence. the troubling is i
-- >> this is steve. up may not recognize his face, and that is because he is the naked skydiver. >> yeah. we got him here on the show before. >> women, he did it again, of course to help raise funds for the african kconservation trust to help save rhinos, and this is the second video that he does of a naked skydive. >> what do you notice on his hand? >> oh, no! >> yeah! [ laughter ] that is sweet. >> that is fantastic. >> we're getting a little shout-out. i love it. >> what's more, we have steve via skype "right this minute" from south africa. you raised a ton of money for the rhinos. >> $60,000 so far. it's a good goal, but i think the next goal is to try to hit into the hundreds of thousands. >> are you raising more money with each successive jump as you get more popular with this? >> what i'm going to do, try to see how many different stunts i can do. i'm going to do a celebrity, one of the big tv shows. i'm hoping at a big stadium with all these things, challenge me to do more things. >> do you think they're doing it because of the rhinos or for the news. >> seeing dead rhinos, i think making it
particularly hard-hit. correspondent steve brown reports tonight from the windy a sniffly city. >> reporter: this flu season is a bad one. >> we are absolutely seeing increase in number of people coming in with the flu like symptoms. cough, fevers, chills fa teak. >> it started early. 27-fold increase in confirmed cases than at the same time last flu s 41 states had flout outbreak. >> the strain out there causing cases is more vir leapt strain than others -- virulent strain than others so some are symptoms bad enough to warrant visit to emergency department. >> it's happened on illinois that 11 different hospitals ranging from four to 19 hours stop taking nonemergency patients in the e.r. because of the influx of flu parents. flu outbreak in boston prompted officials to declare a public health emergency. >> we are seeing significant rate of hospitalization. much more serious than we have seen in the last two years. >> near philadelphia, one hospital has a triage tent outside to treat patients with flu symptoms. tamiflu is in high demand and reportedly in short supply in parts of texas. your
people like gabby giffords come in to the debate and lorraine jobs, steve jobs' widow. come in to the debate helping giffords with her pac and saying to have an equal amount of money, perhaps more money to play with than the nra has. happy to see the explainer in chief bill clinton come in to the debate and important to have somebody like that who is a gun control -- i mean a gun safety and gun culture person like the debate you had with howard on the show yesterday. outlined the sort of cultural difference. you are a gun person. you're a hunter. you know all about guns. howard doesn't. i don't know everything about guns but that doesn't mean we can't have a part in the discussion. >> yeah. >> gun safety, reasonable gun laws. i mean, one study you cited and -- you cited but universal background checks polls well. doesn't change your ability to have the guns you want to have. and we have talked about executive action from the white house. i think it's almost certain that we'll see some executive action and the right -- not all of the right but some of the right using that as
hostile to media. and it works for them because they had enough innovation to get away with it. >> steve jobs was terrific with marketing but lousy with puerto rico. they refused to say how ill he was or what he had. he was the ceo. that was material information. he stayed alive with cancer long enough to build up his successor and build strength so when he died the stock did not go down. john: occasionally bad news can be good for business. like the tragic killing of trayvon martin may have helped skittles. he only had a bag of skittles that was the scene of the protest that followed. >> marching with signs and skittles in honor of trayvon martin rallying wearing a hoodies and carrying skittles. john: skittles said they will not commented its import -- inappropriate to get involved. >> our condolences go out for all involved but we will not exploit this for commercial purposes. by saying that is precisely the way to do it. >> that is an example where a company over thinking that puerto rico gets in the way of word-of-mouth. there is no more powerful thing than people talking to other pe
steve as well about your deep knowledge of afghanistan and pakistan and the other bordering states. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fight
. this is a long time coming. this is a very long time coming. joining us now is steve clemons from "the washington note" and the new america foundation. steve writes at "the atlantic magazine" where he is washington editor at large. thank you so much for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. >> president obama's announcement today that u.s. troops are going to change mission, move to a support role this spring. we had known that it was possible maybe as early as this next summer before today. do we know why the president felt he could accelerate the pace today and do it by this spring? >> well, i think that the president has looked at the -- he just won election. he has looked at the political tea leaves in the united states, and there is not very much support for this. and i think he is making a very important strategic judgment that the timing, that you've got american men and women still on the front line. they're still going to be in danger, but there is nothing strategically achievable in the spring that is different than what is strategically achievable in the summer or fall. and i think for t
